Resummation of large logarithms in the VFN scheme for DIS heavy-quark production

  title={Resummation of large logarithms in the VFN scheme for DIS heavy-quark production},
  author={Sergey I. Alekhin and Johannes Bluemlein and S. Moch},
  journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Phenomenology},
We consider the impact of the resummation of large logarithms, which appear in the QCD evolution of the heavy-quark distributions, on the phenomenology of deep-inelastic heavy-quark production. The heavy-quark PDFs are derived using the fixed-order matching conditions as a boundary for the QCD evolution and the result obtained is compared to the distributions defined by the matching conditions at all scales. With such an approach, the effect of heavy-quark PDF evolution is found to be sizable…

Charm quark mass dependence in a global QCD analysis

We study the effect of the charm quark mass in the CTEQ global analysis of parton distribution functions (PDFs) of the proton. Constraints on the $\overline{\mathrm{MS}}$ mass of the charm quark are

xFitter is an open-source package that provides a framework for the determination of the parton distribution functions (PDFs) of the proton for many different kinds of analyses in Quantum

3-, 4-, and 5-flavor next-to-next-to-leading order parton distribution functions from deep-inelastic-scattering data and at hadron colliders

We determine the parton distribution functions (PDFs) in a next-to-next-to-leading order QCD analysis of the inclusive neutral-current deep-inelastic-scattering (DIS) world data combined with the

An Update of the ABMP16 PDF Fit

We present an updated version of the ABMP16 nucleon PDFs, which is tuned by using recent precise data on $W$- and $Z/\gamma^*$-production at the LHC and the final HERA data on DIS $c$- and $b$-quark

Heavy Flavor Wilson Coefficients in Deep-Inelastic Scattering: Recent Results

We present recent analytic results for the 3-loop corrections to the massive operator matrix element $A_{Qg}^{(3)}$for further color factors. These results have been obtained using the method of
